Tornado Web Server Documentation

by greut

Tornado comes with limited support for WSGI. However, since WSGI does not support non-blocking requests, you cannot use any of the asynchronous/non-blocking features of Tornado in your application if you choose to use WSGI instead of Tornado's HTTP server. Some of the features that are not available in WSGI applications: @tornado.web.asynchronous, the httpclient module, and the auth module.

in other words: WSGI sucks

by Spone & 3 others
Unfortunately there is a lot misuse of GET over POST and vice versa. Both HTTP methods can achieve the same goals, but an incorrect choice between them can lead to unexpected and potentially harmful outcomes.

Short URL Auto-Discovery ‎(wiki)‎

by Spone
Short URL auto-discovery is a simple way to link a long URL with a short URL. The following code should be placed in the head section of the HTML page. link rel="shorturl" href="http://short.com/1234" or add the following to the HTTP Headers of the page Link: http://short.com/1234; rel=shorturl In most real-world situations, the short URL then redirects with an HTTP code 301 to the long URL, but that behavior is not covered by this RFC. That's it! :) try it at: http://relshorturl.appspot.com/

Siege

by rodo
Siege is an http regression testing and benchmarking utility. It was designed to let web developers measure the performance of their code under duress, to see how it will stand up to load on the internet. Siege supports basic authentication, cookies, HTTP and HTTPS protocols. It allows the user hit a web server with a configurable number of concurrent simulated users. Those users place the webserver "under siege."

Changes in Opera’s user agent string format

by tehu & 1 other
Hé oui Jean-Michel en 2009 le http-User-Agent remet en jeu son titre de header le plus ridicule de l'année. Une très belle contribution d'Opera : à mon avis UA sera très très difficile à battre.

Secure Cookie Authentication for CouchDB | Jason Davies: Web Design and Development

by greut

I’ve recently been working on an implementation of cookie-based authentication for CouchDB. This is important for pure CouchDB applications (couchapps), where browsers communicate directly with CouchDB. Currently browsers can be authenticated using HTTP basic auth but the popup login box can be disruptive and confusing for users.

don't miss the picture.
